Was just getting ready to release an update, what timing lol! Looks like Doom RPG Rebalance uses some of the same map numbers for actors as the decoration actors in the enhancement packs, though this shouldn't be too much of an issue to fix on my end. Thanks for pointing this out!

Actually, I was wondering;
What this mod do with other map that's not from original wad or Hell on Earth starter pack?

When BD21 comes out, I was wondering if map enhancement works with other maps, cause the additional trees, cars, barrels are nice. It's not.

I explained your question in a previous response: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=75203&sid=58f24a908bf6e887c2b65296da0f4227#p1221407

Whatever maps are enhanced with BD are also applied here. The only thing that changed is how the script registers a map to enhance, so that the enhancements can work with other gameplay mods universally. To be clear though, that doesn't mean the script will randomly apply the enhanced decorations to whatever map you load up. At best (and like I already mentioned in the other post), you'll have fancier decorations typically found in other WADS (columns, techlamps, torches, liquid, etc.). Thanks for checking this out, much appreciated! B-)

I forgot to mention on update 3, it overwrites textures too no matter the load order. I hope update 4 fixed that. Edit: looks like it fixes most issues with doom rpg outpost ( one area is that theres supposed to be a marine he is not a shooting target, not sure about that), and the lava ltp pack issues are fixed too good job. As I noted above, custom texture packs are over written.with this addon on. Not sure why.

That's due to the dynamic level enhancement script, it swaps out textures for certain maps (E2M6 is a good example of this). Works the same as in bdv21, so I'm not really looking to alter this particular aspect.

Hmm, I'll see if I can pinpoint where this is at. You able to describe specifically where in the map, or post a screenshot if possible?

Can a toggle or cvar be added? If that's not too much to add. It only a problem when I load dhtp or high res textures, certain pillars, ceilings, floors or walls just look low res while the rest looks high. I think it works great on props and everything else.

As for drpg outpost. It's right at the area there there is a glass display that you previously fixed. I remember being marine behind the counter. Now it's just a target lol. Anyways great work

Sorry, but I genuinely don't see what you're referring to. Is this the spot you're talking about?

Yes but there's just one shooting target. Updatd: Okay so I looked at it again. Seems it randomly picks a marine to be a shooting target. Weird

I think theres a bit of confusion about what this mod does and also what BD21 does when it comes to decorations. Basically BD21 replaces very few actual textures but replaces quite a few decorations. Basically the Gist is that everything you encounter here in UME while mixing a Texture mod will also happen in BD21 proper. The Reason for this is because certain Props like the Ceiling lights in E1m1 are attached to specific textures, aka this is a GZD indexing issue and not much to actually do with Mixing Mods in the right or wrong order.

This Screenshot is EOATexFix.wad with UME here. EAOTexFix is loaded after UME.

Ehhh...I mean, you're not wrong about the indexing thing, but that's not what's actually happening here. The dynamic level enhancement script from bdv21 changes textures by swapping out the vanilla ones with differently named textures. Here's an example for E1M1:

Code: Select all

//DOOM E1M1 - Hangar
Script "MapEnhancementE1M1" (VOID)
{
ChangeSky ("SKYPHO", "SKYPHO");
ReplaceTextures("FLOOR7_1", "MFLR8_2");
ReplaceTextures("BROWN144", "CLIFF05B");
ReplaceTextures("BROWN144", "CLIFF05B");
//ReplaceTextures("TLITE6_5", "LITGEN7B");
//ReplaceTextures("TLITE6_6", "LITGEN9B");
ReplaceTextures("FLOOR4_1", "METAL51");
ReplaceTextures("FLOOR4_5", "METAL51");
ReplaceTextures("BROWN1", "METAL24",  NOT_BOTTOM);
ReplaceTextures("BROWN1", "LIT05S");
ReplaceTextures("BROWN96", "METAL22");
ReplaceTextures("LITE2", "METAL24B");
ReplaceTextures("STONE2", "BUNKER05");
ReplaceTextures("CEIL3_1", "METAL51");
ReplaceTextures("CEIL3_2", "METAL51");
delay(1);
}
Textures packs work based on the original texture names, hence why packs like DHTP simply won't work in this scenario. In the case of LTP, I actually had to do some trickery on my part to make it compatible without having to go the route of creating patches or altering the level enhancement script, but that's only due to LTP having it's own set of cvars that I was able to reference through scripting.

So I think what you're referring to in the screenshot is the lack of the destructible red lights on the ceiling, and the answer for that is simple...they were removed in the bdv21 gold release lol. Try running the beta pack with the texture mod you're using.

I have had strange issues with brutal Doom and doom rpg rebalance changing some of the decorations completely. Possibly some incompatibilities. But these universal map enhancements go really well with the barrels o fun mod. I think you have to load this mod first. Some of the barrels make a ton of smoke. The purple one will blast so much smoke at you it's like temporary blindness.
